At least the free tabloids in NYC are in sync with the celebratory mood here.

Metro is trying to boost Quinn’s sagging numbers in the process (lots of politicians trying to get credit for this). NY Post ignores it and I’ll check the Daily News later

Didn’t fin the Daily News cover, but saw their hatchet job on Greenwald

They leave no stone unturned. How can anyone believe Greenwald now when

In a 2003 lawsuit, he and his then partner, Werner Achetz, were sued by their West Side condo board for having a dog that was bigger than building by-laws allowed.

The couple countered that they and their dog Uli were being singled out because they were gay, a charge the board denied. The case eventually settled.

Here’s Greenwald on the expected attacks

The personal side of taking on the NSA: emerging smears

Distractions about my past and personal life have emerged – an inevitable side effect for those who challenge the US government

It was a very large march.This was mostly a unions event. All Broadway was cleared of traffic between Herald Square and 14 Street (20 blocks = 1 mile). Bloomberg’s Army was there – but not in riot gear or hazmat suits. This being unions and not dirty hippies, they were wearing jackets marked “COMMUNITY AFFAIRS” .

A small but spirited contingent picketed some of the sides of one of the Credit Suisse buildings for the anti war profiteers action last night. I didn’t know there were two huge Credit Suisse buildings there and they had a zillion entrances

– now noticeable by the number of cops (Bloomberg’s army) posted there.

The free ones actually do it by reporting

the students strike against tuition hikes albeit in their skewed way.

The mogul owned ones do it tabloid style, with identical headlines

They almost seem to be taunting us, don’t they?


I went there with the dog and my cans. Police surrounded the place with their metal barricades making getting in very difficult. people started using the barricades as tables. I was being offered meals  several times as I walked through

There was music and even a floating turkey.
And pets were taken care too!

-Here’s the account from the OWS site

Today, Occupations across the U.S. have shown that the 99% Movement can do more than protest — we can also take care of one another. In D.C. and many other cities, Occupiers sat down for a “family meal.” In New York, Occupy The Hood dropped off hundreds of meals at shelters across Brooklyn. The OWS kitchen cooked warm meals for 4000 people and handed them out at Liberty Square. Following dinner, there was a spontaneous sit-in in solidarity with the many people who lost their place of rest when OWS was raided on November 15th.

And no plastic turkey as I feared – luckily for OWS he is a chicken

on edit, adding a few more pictures

Volunteers were distributing these invitations far and wide

The People Library – which Bloomberg confiscated and destroyed is being revived
